Welcome to the two hundredth and eleventh episode of From Crisis to Crisis: A Superman Podcast! This podcast has a simple premise; examine just about every Superman comic published between Man of Steel #1 in 1986 to Adventures of Superman #649 in 2006 in an informative and hopefully entertaining format.
Part index. Part commentary. Part history lesson. All podcast.
A new era dawns as the boys (finally) finish up The Death of Clark Kent and begin talking about a brand new Superman title! In Superman #102 the Man of Steel teams up with the World’s Mightiest Mortal or rather Superman has a bit of a dust up with Captain Marvel thanks to both heroes seeing the other as one of their deadliest enemies. Lois and Clark are reunited in Adventures of Superman #525 and not only does it feel so good, but the creators explore why Clark needs a secret identity. This is followed by Superman: The Man of Tomorrow #1, which not only brings Roger Stern back to the Superman as a writer but also brings Lex Luthor back…back again…Lex is back…tell a friend. Finally Mike and Jeff looks at the side books that came out during this cover month which includes Steel #17, Showcase ’95 #7 (at least the Mongul story in that book), Outsiders #20 and Loose Cannon #2!
Special guest appearance by a cricket somewhere near where Jeff was recording!
